Fixing a Frigidaire Top-Load Washer that Won't Pump Out

This customer contacted me at 2AM Saturday morning of Memorial Day Weekend via the Service Call Request form at the homepage of my website and I was there in just a few hours.  That's SOP for The Appliance Guru

The customer was at his condo by the golf course for the weekend and the washer in his Frigidaire stacked laundry unit wouldn't pump out.  That can really put a wet towel on a vacation!  I disassembled the pump and found a golf tee jamming the impeller.  In the video, I described it as "foreign object" because the customer didn't me want to say it was a golf tee in front of his wife and get him trouble.  Vacation and marital harmony both saved by The Appliance Guru

Maytag Neptune Dryer with a Split Drum

Customer called with a complaint that her 7-year old Maytag Neptune MDE9700AYW dryer would hum when started then click off.  Also said the drum would not turn by hand.  What could the problem be?  The answer may surprise you! 


Epilogue: Turns out this is not covered under warranty. The failure occurred right at the seam where the drum was welded together.  Total fee to replace this drum, part and labor, is over $400.  I recommended that the customer purchase a new Whirlpool dryer with a lint filter on the top panel and no electronic controls, just knobs and switches, available at Sears for less than $500.  She's going to go that route.

Fixing a Whirlpool VM Washer that gets Stuck in the Cycle

This is the new Whirlpool top-loading high-efficiency washer, called the Vertical Modular Washer (VMW). The customer called in the complaint that her washer was not progressing in the cycle. Sometimes, the fix is easy... IF you understand how washers work and know what you're looking for.  Watch as The Appliance Guru zeros right in on the problem with breathtaking speed. 

This customer is on a well (dug well, not a drilled well) and doesn't use any sediment filters in her water supply.  The hot water side is never a problem because the hot water tank acts like a settling basin.  Can you imagine what the inside of that hot water tank looks like?  So the solution is to install a simple sediment filter in the water supply that can be changed as needed and protects the water heater and all wet appliances.
